Overall, it's very entertaining, but I still liked the action movie better.
Very cool how the comic book comes to life. The only knock I have against it is that there is only one man who does all of the voices. This is a little annoying when there a...Read more

Watchmen - Motion Comics (Blu-ray Disc, 2009)

Rating: Not Rated

Movie synopsis

Alan Moore's WATCHMEN is given sound and movement in this video version of the critically acclaimed comic book. Under the supervision of original illustrator Dave Gibbons, the 12-chapter series has voice actors translating the comic's dialogue balloons into speech, while digital zooms, pans, and some animation effects take viewers further inside the story than ever before. First distributed on iTunes, and scheduled for DVD release just days before the 2009 feature film by Zach Snyder, WATCHMEN - Motion Comics offers a helpful intro to Alan Moore's dystopian world of dark superheroes. Set in a 1980s-era America where masked heroes have their talents banned, the sprawling story begins when someone starts taking down the former heroes one by one--and a mysterious character named Rorschach begins to investigate.

"The tone is solemn, the figures move slowly -- they're panel-for-panel reproductions of the book....The colors are dazzling..."

Very cool how the comic book comes to life. The only knock I have against it is that there is only one man who does all of the voices. This is a little annoying when there are scenes where two women are talking, and they both sound almost the same.

Interesting compared to the Zack Snyder movie

Created: 07/01/11
I never read the comic, and I assume this 'motion comic' is the next best thing. The plot differs from the live action movie in a few places: filling in some infomation, and one or two complete changes in other areas of the story as ideas were refined.

The voice-over is done by one person who reads both the male and female roles. This is not done as well as it could be and can be distracting, but it can be ignored.

If you like the story, I think this moton comic is good to see. However, the low resolution graphics are wasted on blu-ray. It would look just as good on DVD, so save your money...
